    This is the latest on Kuwait's Silk City development

    Kuwait has approved $65 billion for infrastructure, health, environment and power projects for the 2021-2022 financial year, with 5 percent of them based on partnerships with the private sector.

    The projects comprise mainly the airport expansion, the Silk City, island development, trans-Kuwait rail network and rail link with nearby Gulf countries, Matla City, and the Clean Fuel Project.

    The first phase of construction of the Silk City began in 2019. Madinat Al Hareer is part of Kuwait Vision 2035 project.

    The project is being built in individual phases: May 2019, the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway opened as a part of the Silk City project's first phase, which includes Mubarak Al Kabeer Port (also under construction now).
    The Silk City project is a part of China's Belt and Road Initiative.

    The development of Subiya is part of the first phase of Madinat al-Hareer (Silk City) construction. After the construction of Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway, the development in Subiya has slowly started. The deadline for the Silk City project's tender is 31 March 2022

    Several major projects in Kuwait, including islands development, the Silk City, and the rail network, are lagging behind due to the Coronavirus pandemic and other factors, a newspaper in the OPEC member has reported.

    Two multi-billion-dollar projects for the construction of the Silk City and the development of five island have not even got off the ground with 'zero execution rate' it said.

    Silk City will have 4 distinct quarters each with its own city centre. Finance City, Leisure City, Ecological City and Residential City are designed to provide the highest of global standards with a special focus on educational and cultural amenities culminating in a truly integrated solution for this modern community. Connected to Kuwait City by a new Bay-Bridge, joining with the new Arabian Bay Port, and anticipating a new International Airport, this city is planned to accommodate nearly 700,000 people and create nearly 430,000 new jobs. An emerald necklace of lakes and parks, like ribbons of silk, intertwine and weave each of the 25 neighbourhoods together into one cohesive city.
